Why don’t you use all the nail holes?

Although many people think that more nails will keep a shoe on better, this is somewhat false.  A shoe is generally lost by a horse stepping on that shoe.  With horses weighing as much as they do, once they step on said shoe, 40 nails will not keep it on.  By using fewer nails, with good height, you ensure the foot remains intact when a shoe is stepped off.  You also leave fewer empty holes to harbor bacteria when the shoe is reset.
